Clay Buchholz Suffers Right Forearm Strain During Rough Start For Phillies

1,831

Clay Buchholz’s tenure with the Philadelphia Phillies isn’t off to a good start.

The right-handed starter left his second start with the Phillies in the third inning with an apparent injury, which the team’s Twitter later called a right forearm strain.

Buchholz was off to a rough start at Citizens Bank Park, as he allowed six runs on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings before leaving the game against the New York Mets.

That performance came after he allowed four earned runs and eight hits in five innings in his first start for the Phillies.
